Storyline

With the the Portwenn Players annual dance coming up, Louisa tries to interest Martin in attending, but when he turns her down she gives her extra ticket to Mark Mylow who immediately misunderstands and thinks they now have a date. When Martin hears about it, he too misunderstands. Martin visits Stewart James, a recluse who thinks he lives with Anthony, a giant 6-foot squirrel. Martin wants to have him sectioned, but reconsiders following a subsequent visit. Young Peter Cronk gets into trouble when he's accused of destroying bird houses and feeders in various back gardens and runs away. Written by garykmcd

Another great episode ruined by snarky fishwifery
23 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

Just when we thought Elaine was over and out bar the nose tone unturned, enter Doc Martin's Auntie Joan. Not a word goes by without her raining on Martin's parade. It's not even snark, it's carefully calculated vitriol designed to drive a stake into every little crevice in the male lead character. It's as if this is the only way women can achieve a sense of equality on TV. Guess what, ladies. This does not make you look smart, or sassy or strong. It just makes you look stupid and selfish.

Frankly, it's a little tiring reading the "Auntie Joan was one of the most beloved characters.." BS in the TV press. Beloved? No she ain't. Toxic? You bet. The sooner she goes the better this series will be.

*Update* Groan. Auntie Joan is in it for five whole seasons. Thank goodness for the fast forward button.
